Hearing The Gospel, Believing In Christ And Being Saved

Luke 9:1-27
It was a short mission (1-6) - short but important! They were being trained for future work. There and then, people were hearing the Gospel, believing in Christ and being saved. There was opposition (7-9): There’s always plenty of that - ‘We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us’(Romans 8:37). There is physical need. There is also spiritual need - ‘Do not labour for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life’(10-17; John 6:27). In verses 18-27, we learn (a) Who Jesus is: ‘the Christ of God’(20). (b) What Jesus has done for us: His death and resurrection (22). (c) What Jesus calls us to be: His followers (23). May God give us grace to follow ‘the Son of God who loved us and gave Himself for us’(Galatians 2:20). We follow Christ, looking for ‘the Kingdom of God’(27).
